HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
This model has only just gone out of production, and can still be bought new from some dealers for £610. This one does not have the box or papers to confirm the sale date, but we think it was originally bought circa 2015.
The DS range was first introduced in 1959 as Certina’s more rugged, sports watch, and this tradition has been continued here. As well as a solid stainless steel case, the bracelet is made from the same material and the clasp has a secondary lock to ensure the watch is kept on the wrist. The watch was originally tested to 100M water resistance. You have an exhibition glass case back to show the movement functioning, and it is working very well as you would expect. You have a date window at 4, and this function can be quick set via the crown. The watch has been worn, so carries a few light scratches, but nothing really significant. Two bracelet links have been removed and lost, but the bracelet will still fit most wrists.
This watch will be supplied with our Certificate of Authenticity.
